its been 4 years now since i started in dirt. 3 weeks ago, after another texas heat wave that made it no fun to even try, i set out to grow my next adventure in some kind of pots. well to start out its just lowes buckets, home firing giant ceramic pots can wait for a while. I'm new around here so ill just load a few pics here and there. zucchini and cucumbers are my first two container tries. well i did top off an okra and after 23 days in water it rooted, its part of the adventure too.
pitcher plant! ok now i gotta learn how to do that!
i did have one more pic to show. against a southern wall of a metal building. its 120 degrees bouncing off that wall on a 80 degree day. im in the process of moving the whole adventure. when its 40 in a few months ill check it out, might be 80 against the wall! probably not
The one gallon buckets i got at a Dollar Tree store. Everythings a dollar! I check in there alot. Just the other day i went in and they had 1.5 gallon pails like a kid would use at the beach to make sandcastles. and in lighter colors, a lime green and and a blue. wont get as hot and a little more room for roots.
i went overboard on dinner. round zucc slice with crumbled potato chip halo. (ate the zu but kinda scraped the tater chips in the compost pail)
